Got this in an e-mail today.


Beezzer, (not the user ID I use on the Kos)
Occupy Wall Street is spreading like wildfire. There are now supportive groups for the protests in over 250 communities in the United States and Canada.

Almost wherever you live, there is an Occupy Wall Street group near you. Many of these groups have already started their own local protests, while the others are planning upcoming events.

Daily Kos is joining with SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, to help grow this new movement of the 99%. We need to let the 1% know that we will no longer be silent in the face of the economic pain they continue to inflict on everyone else.

Please, pledge to join an Occupy Wall Street group near you. After you sign, you will be redirected to a comprehensive list of local groups.

Solidarity is beautiful,
Chris Bowers
Campaign Director, Daily Kos


Why won't they invite the Tea Party?
I'll tell you why, because what they want is not constitutional. What they want is not currently written.

Be careful of the change you wish for.

Be specific. What about what "they" want is unconstitutional?

With no supporting info you just come off as bitter.

Well, because the TEA party supports lower taxes for corporations. Sort of the antithesis to their message. Also, there are TP members at these protests. You can believe what you want, but dont spread misinformation and halftruths.

property is money and property rights are guaranteed by the constitution thats why its unconstitutional.

people cant vote themselves money or success thats on them and them alone and the only way your going to take money from wall street is by force or more of the same government sanctions that have led us to this point.

all i have heard is wall street is evil eat the rich kill the rich ok then what?

people dont have a damn clue.

Nothing substantial, and definitely not bitter. What they appear to want is a more socialistic approach to governing.
Something the Tea Party would not endorse. They make nice noise about being inclusive (the 99%) but only if you adhere to their paradigm.

I thought the the tea parties consisted of a non-cohesive and diverse individuals in this movement, so why are the tea partiers not marching with the occupiers? I see tea partiers demonizing and accusing the occupiers of being socialistor marxist ... not a good look for a movement that claims to be diverse and independently thinking (not that I believed that nonsense).

Nobody is stopping the tea parties from participating. Maybe if the tea parties would come in solidarity with the occupiers, despite some of the differences, they could get some traction in their own movement for once, but by the sounds of it, neither you or the tea parties are interested.

Some of the points put down by the occupiers I don't necessarily agree with, but I understand their anger and frustrations, and you'd have to have your . totally in the sand to deny that big business has a part in this mess and should take responsibility. If the tea parties continue to demonize other movements that don't necessarily align with theirs, they're going to continue to marginalize and restrict their movement to a specific segment of the population. But hey? What point of mine matters? I'm sure you see this totally differently in your world.

I'm a Tea Partier, and I support these protests.

I believe we all want the same thing, we just aren't good at communicating it.

I believe we need to lower taxes on all people, including the rich, but at the same time, we need to get rid of all the loopholes and credits and shelters and make them actually pay their taxes! So in a sense we can lower, and raise at the same time by simplifying the tax code.

At this point, anarchy is better than corporate oligarchy and our Republic has been dead for almost 100 years, and our Democracy experiment isn't working with the current campaign laws and dishonest press. Anarchy until we can Restore the Republic.

Crisis? The only "crisis" I see is a bunch of unions and confused kids shouting at wealthy.

Just because folks like Neo and myself won't drink your kool-ade doesn't make us their shills.

I didnt see them invite Democrats or Republicans either. So I guess EVERYONE should hate them, right? So I guess the TEA party needs an invitation to the revolution huh?

If you feel you need an invitation, you're part of the problem.

Besides, why on earth would anyone invite a group that so feverishly supports the 1%, and would likely gleefully instigate violence?

Yeah I wouldn't put it past the Tea Party goons to do whatever possible to make the peaceful protestors look bad. Bring your AR15s and GLOCKs and wave them all around...

I've been saying this repeatedly. Banks don't write the loopholes. Politicians do.

The protests SAY one thing, but their actions clearly demonstrate another.

You guys sound pretty 1% to me. In every single post. You have been serving up koolaid to the fine people of ATS, and now that people have had enough of this corporate BS existence, you guys are noticeably scared and panicking.

They have alot in common with the orignal Tea party. the orignal tea party was against Wall street and the bailouts when it first started.

And what happens when the politicians refuse to write the loopholes for the banksters? They get JFKed and Wellstoned.

Yeah, sorry but OWS bunch have lost all credibility once KOS, Sorros, Moveon and all the rest got involved, or at least broadcast their involvement.

Yeah, terrified of a bunch of mosh-pit, flanel wearing, union thugs.

Hold me.
